Lindsey Hunter Headed To Jackson State HOF

Lindsey Hunter averaged more than 20 ppg in each of his three seasons at Jackson State. 

Before he started his two-decade long NBA playing and coaching career, Lindsey Hunter honed his basketball skills by terrorizing the SWAC. The former Jackson State guard is being honored by his alma mater on this weekend as one of 13 inductees into the JSU Hall of Fame.

// Hunter started at Alcorn State, but his career didn’t take off until he transferred to Jackson State. Hunter averaged 20-plus points per game in each of his three seasons at JSU. As a senior, he averaged 26.7 points per game.

Hunter was selected by the Detroit Pistons with the 10th pick of the 1993 NBA Draft. He averaged 8.5 ppg for his career, winning NBA championships in 2002 and 2004. He served as interim head coach of the Phoenix Suns earlier this year before joining Golden State as an assistant to Mark Jackson.
